I have not yet made a PDF version of this lesson. If you'd like to request that I make one, shoot me an email and please let me know - I am always adding back catalog lessons to my PDF library.

Here's a list of the 130+ lessons I have made PDFs for.

Chord progressions

Here are the three progressions you’ll need in order to play this entire song. For the verse, note you’ll bounce between the two progressions a few time before moving on to the chorus. See my video lesson for context where I play it through.

Verse

"I never came to the beach or stood by the ocean..."
G . . . . . C/G . G . . . . . C/G .

"I never sat by the shore, under the sun..."
Bm . . . C . . . Bm . . . C . . .

Chorus

"But here I am, next to you, the sky is more blue..."
Em . . . Am . . . G . . . Bm . . .
